“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” continues to be a major success for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as Forbes recently reported the movie is now Rock’s biggest domestic box office draw in his career. The movie, so far, has totaled $353.33 million, surpassing “Furious 7”, which brought in $353 million.
The “Fast and Furious” Franchise still remains The Rock’s biggest draw overall, as worldwide ‘Jumanji’ has taken in $858.4 million, behind “The Fate of the Furious” with $1.24 billion and “Furious 7” with $1.52 billion.
As we noted during the Super Bowl, “Jumanji” beat yet another record over that weekend, as it has officially topped “Titanic”, having now spent the most time at number one since opening in over 20 years.
In related news, The Rock has posted the following on Instagram, announcing he will soon be working on another original concept film:
Brother I’m in. Raising a glass to… the pitch. The last time writer/director @rawsonthurber (dapper gentleman to my left) pitched me an idea for a movie.. I listened intently (we had just made Central Intelligence together). At the end of that pitch, I was so impressed by his original concept idea, I simply said, BROTHER I’M IN. Two years later we launch the world premiere trailer for that original concept idea.. #SKYSCRAPER. Now we sit and Rawson has pitched yet another original concept idea for a movie that’s again, very impressive. Big, global, fun, sexy, cool and thrilling… and my character will make you think twice about ever judging a book by its cover – even after you’ve read every page. My producing partners @flynnpictureco & @hhgarcia41 loved Rawson’s pitch too as you can tell by their big ass Kool Aid smiles. And yes, I may be on my 5th tequila, but I can still say with 99.7% sharp intellect and clarity, BROTHER, I’M IN. Can. Not. Wait. To get this movie made for you guys – you’re gonna love it. Another round to go please.. 🥃 #Cheers #ThePitch #OriginalConcept ♦
